A configuration file could not be loaded.

Client applications use a global configuration that applies to all users, separate configurations that apply to individual users, and configurations that apply to roaming users. The userLevel value determines the location of the configuration file being opened. It indicates whether it has no user level (the configuration file is in the same directory as the application) or has a per-user level (the configuration file is in an application settings path determined by the user level type.).

The following code example shows how to use the OpenExeConfiguration method.
